At long last, the debates between Cruz and O’Rourke have finally started. Tonight’s debate was the first in a set of three. The debate was held at McFarlin Auditorium at SMU in Dallas, Texas. The moderated debate covered domestic policy. O’Rourke and Cruz were given 90 seconds to answer questions and 60 seconds for a response, plus 30 seconds for a rebuttal to the response. The panelists for this debate are Julie Fine, NBC 5 political reporter, and Gromer Jeffers, Dallas Morning News political writer. The debate was held in front of a live audience of 240 people.
